Description & Analysis

The U. S. Mint was in cost-cutting mode during the years following World War II, and this fact is reflected in the generally poor quality of its coinage of the 1950s.

1951(P) are typical of this period in being plentiful in Mint State but seldom found with sharp strikes from fresh dies. Enough rolls were set aside at the time for today's collectors to have a large pool of pieces in which to search for gems. Fairly common through MS 67, this issue also has a large enough population of FT-certified pieces to satisfy the demand from advanced collectors.
